this is the complete John Bachar interview (35.10 minutes) recorded in the KGNU studio in late March 2009. Geoff Anderson and Mike Brooks sit down with legendary free soloist John Bachar at the KGNU studios in Boulder, Colorado. John Bachar epitomizes the late 1970's and 80's Yosemite Hard Man. John tells us about his genesis as a climber. His ideas of training for climbing and some of the pivotal people in Camp 4 life. John goes on to talk about some of his travels; when he climbed the 2nd or 3rd free ascent of the Naked Edge in Eldorado, his fall soloing Clever Lever and the Zone System. And wraps up with advice on climbing safely.
